What an interesting opening line to this book!

I am almost done reading this book, and am enjoying it. I think if you like Levine's style of reworking fairytales, you'll enjoy this one as well. I am anxious to see how this novel resolves itself.

I generally like Levine, but was disappointed with this one. It felt very stilted, and not at all what I was hoping for. I felt the character development was very thin.
